The Rock-itt : December 2009
The much anticipated Alice in Wonderland movie is drawing closer and the posters for the Tim Burton directed film have been released, so expect to see these pasted around town in the near future. The movie hits cinemas on the 4th March and stars Australian, Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter. Love it or Hate it, no one can argue about the money making ability of Twilight: New Moon. Despite Mediocre reviews and as many haters as there are people who adore the series, the second film of the series shattered the US box office record for best opening day of all time, bringing in 72.2 million dollars on day one, and 26.3 million coming just from midnight screenings. After the opening weekend closed, New Moon finished 3rd in all time weekend box office. Last year's Batman film, 'The Dark Knight' sits on top after making 158.4 million, Spiderman 3 (151.2 million) coming second, and New Moon slotting in at 3rd, making a whooping 140.7 million. Nobody goes to a Stallone movie for the story, but the plot revealed in early September for Rambo V was pretty out there. For those that didn't hear the original pitch, the idea, which was taken from the novel, Hunter by James Byron Huggins, was a military organisation in the Pacific Northwest, accidentally made an out-of-control genetically engineered creature, and Rambo and a group of mercenaries are hired to hunt it down. When the announcement was first made, fans vented their anger for the silliness of the film, some of that must have got back to Stallone, as he has announced they are changing the script. Instead, the film will see Rambo headed across the border to "a violent city where many young women have vanished." Now THAT sounds like a Rambo movie! Despite what one of the biggest movies of the year is telling you, the world will not end in 2012. NASA has come and spoken out, and actually gone into detail of why the Mayan belief that the world will end on December 21, 2012 is a load of rubbish. With some people worried, especially after the film (which has done very well in the worldwide box office) has come out, scientists have discussed matters such as asteroids, solar storms, and aligned planets and how they are going to bring no harm. You can sleep easy at night. It seems everyone saw this year's comedy hit 'The Hangover' but if you thought you were the only one who wondered how much that night would have really cost, you weren't alone. Although the guys didn't remember the night before, I'm sure the bill would refresh their memories. Jack Satin, one of the top Vegas showmen calculated how much it would have cost and he's come up with close to $6000, taking into account drinks, gambling, and even hospital bills, so if you ever plan a boozy Vegas trip, be warned, as Satin didn't even include the damage to the hotel room.
